The question doesn't seem right in English. What is the size, or how big is the population of Spain?

This implies that size is the target of the question. Yet using size in the translation, is not allowed. E.g.: "❤❤❤ groot is de bevolking van Spanje?" literally translates to "How big is the population of Spain?", which covers the intent of the question.
